Happy Birthday Armando! In January, Melanie’s dear friend Armando hosted a birthday fundraiser to support Princess Alli Foundation and three other nonprofits benefitting children with craniofacial defects. Armando’s fundraiser was a huge success – he raised $560!! We wanted to do something special with our portion of the funds he raised, so we are sending 60 of our toiletry care packages to families currently at Medical City Children’s Hospital, where Armando received treatment for Treacher Collins Syndrome as a child. We are so excited to send these boxes out! Not only are they our first two TEXAS boxes, but they are our first two OUT OF STATE boxes! THANK YOU […]
Join us on Monday, January 29, 2018 for our 2nd Annual Pay It Forward Day. Pay It Forward Day is a way to remember our sweet Allison Ruth by performing a small act of kindness for someone else. Nothing is too big or too small – buy a coffee, pay for a lunch, write a handwritten note, or spend an hour volunteering with an organization you love. Please let us know you are thinking about us by sharing how you helped to brighten someone’s day on our Facebook event, or just let us know that you did. And thank you for keeping our family in your thoughts on Alli’s 3rd […]
I wanted to publicly thank all of you who came out tonight to pack care packages on such short notice.

We packed all of our Christmas care packages in a matter of 36 minutes with this amazing group!! That has to be a record!! These next weeks are not easy ones and tonight was a beautiful moment for the Princess Alli Foundation Family to feel loved and supported. Thank you for stepping up tonight for […]
